Video: Julea Ward on being forced out of counseling program for her Christian views


Julea Ward was forced out of her School of Counseling graduate program at Eastern Michigan University for refusing to counsel a man in a homosexual relationship, citing her Christian views.

She tells her story to Speak Up University:

The Michigan Attorney General has also gotten involved in the case, coming to the defense of Mrs. Ward, as the Detroit Free Press reports:

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has waded into a closely watched federal appeals case, siding with an Eastern Michigan University student who claims her dismissal from the university for refusing to counsel gay and lesbian patients violated her religious belief against homosexuality.

Schuette is the latest entrant in a case that has drawn conservative and religious groups, public universities and civil liberties organizations.
